I expect to add Doppler tuning and rotor control in the next version of
gpredict. I expect to use the Ham Radio Control Libraries
(http://hamlib.sf.net) as backend driver, and if the protocol specs for
the ARRL SatTracker 688 controller are available I can add that to
hamlib, too.
Although gpredict is designed and developed under Linux, it is known to
work on most modern desktop environments including Mac OSX and Windows
XP (don't know about Vista).
